The ACLU works to ensure that everyone can make the best decision for themself and their family about whether and when to have a child without undue political interference.
UPDATE: On September 18, 2023, Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin resumed abortion care in Milwaukee and Madison.
After the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade on June 24, 2022, dismantling the constitutional protections for abortion that have existed for nearly 50 years, abortion providers ceased abortion care in Wisconsin for fear of prosecution under a law from 1849. Attorney General Josh Kaul filed a lawsuit challenging this ban, and in July, 2023, a judge ruled that the law does not apply to "consensual abortions" but rather to feticide usually "by assaulting and battering the mother."
